Enemy Insights: Inspired by Inspire? Issue 10 Published a Month before Boston Marathon Bombing
CCS Analysts, 5/1/2013

Inspire 10 (Spring 2013) has been published by AQAP, hitting the web in early March 2013. This is the second edition written and third published since the assassination of Inspire's founding editorial team, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, by U.S. drones in late 2011. It preceded the dual-wolf attack on the 2013 Boston Marathon by only a few weeks. As with previous editions, production values are impressive, content is rich and diverse and with a return of its typical humor and wit, with a more forward-looking outlook than the previous edition mourning the loss of its editorial leadership, as if its verve and confidence has been restored along with its editorial continuity.

Below is a reformatted edition suitable for speedy on-screen scrolling, easing web viewing and facilitating wider discussion by students of counter-terrorism, in contrast to the magazine's original, and bulkier, PDF format that has made it hard for netizens to scroll, probe, and analyze. We hope you find it useful as a teaching and learning tool, and for its insight into AQ communications and propaganda -- and into the mind of our opponent as the struggle continues.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR | YAHYA IBRAHIM

In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful.

All praise due to Allah. We thank Him for giving us Tawfeeq to complete the tenth issue of this blessed magazine. The past issues were a success, we ask the Almighty to accept the deeds of all who contributed. [4: 84]

In this holy verse, Allah orders the Prophet and his followers to fight in His way and to inspire the believers. Therefore, fighting in the way of Allah is an obligation, so is inspiring to jihad. Alhamdulillah, three members of the Inspire team have given us wonderful examples of sincerity. They fought as they inspired Muslims to fight and gained martyrdom in the process. The three are Sheikh Anwar Al-Awlaqi, Brother Samir Khan and Brother Abu Yazeed Al-Qatari.

Thus, this magazine is written by the blood of Shuhadaa. I urge Muslims to distribute all issues of this magazine so as to spread the word of truth and not to waste the blood of our beloved Shuhadaa writers.

Finally I call my Muslim brothers in the West:

You have a responsibility towards this Ummah. The infidel West has once again insulted our Prophet. Those who insult our prophets should be taught a lesson, and Brother Muslim, you can do it, inshallah.

In Defense of the Honor of the Prophet Muhammas Peace be upon Him.

All praise due to Allah who said ...

To proceed:

O Muslims, the film produced in America which insults our Messenger Muhammad, comes in the chain of the crusade attacks on Islam. In response to these consecutive assaults, the Muslim ummah revolted in honor of their noble Messenger. The plot of the enemies backfired and became a disgrace and shame on them, a penalty for their insults on the status of the Prophets, violation of the sacred lands and trespassing the boundaries of war ethics. Meanwhile, the status of our Messenger remains high and honorable. No insult could ever tarnish him. Whoever hates him is cut off from success and prosperity in this world and the Hereafter.

Our stances on this incident are as follow:

Firstly: We affirm that defending the honor of the Prophet is an inevitable obligation in Islam upon the Muslim ummah, every individual as per his capability.

Secondly: All should strive together towards one goal; expelling US embassies from Muslim lands, persevering in demonstrations and protests, as has happened in a number of Muslim nations. Their embassies should be torched like the zealous brothers did in Egypt and Yemen. And whenever a Muslim gets hold of US ambassadors or delegates, he has the best example in the act of the grandsons of Omar Mukhtar in Libya - who slaughtered the US ambassador - may Allah reward them. Let the step of expelling embassies and consulates be a milestone to free the Muslim lands from the American domination and arrogance.

Thirdly: We call upon our brothers in the West to fulfill their Islamic obligation. They are obliged to defend the Prophet , for they are more capable of crushing the enemy at his heart.

Fourthly: We remind America of the words of Sheikh Usama bin Laden may Allah accept his martyrdom:

"Enmity between mankind runs long back in history, but the wise of the nations abided by the morals of conflicts and war ethics, this was good for them. Disputes do not last in one state, and war has its ups and downs. But you, in your struggle against us, have abandoned war ethics practically, even though you raise its slogans theoretically."

"If there is no check on the freedom of your words, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions."

"And response is what you see, not what you hear. May our mothers be bereaved of us if we do not bring victory for the Messenger of Allah."

Regarding the French Crusader Military Intervention in Mali

All praise is due to Allah the Lord of the worlds and there is no aggression except against oppressors. May His peace and blessings be upon His honest Messenger, Muhammad ibn Abdillah, together with his family and companions.

To proceed:

The intervention in Mali does not serve the French government's interests. The government took its eye's view and ignored the French people and their interests.

Its retreat from Afghanistan was a wise decision, but why does it take this decision today? Why in this region in particular while it has a bloody history with the natives which arouses all Muslims' rage?

O French nation, these aggression, offense and oppression against nations do not entail unto you except woes and grieves. And you have examples in your previous aggressions, how long did they last? How did they end? Don't you ever learn?!

Do not whitewash your objectives and claim that you have come to protect and help the people of Mali. Where have you been in the past years while it lived in tragedies? Where are you from protecting Palestine from the crimes of the Jews'? Where are you from protecting the Iraqi, Syrian and other oppressed nations if you are truthful?

What comes to the mind is that this aggression is a crusade war on a Muslim land and its people. This is not strange, not long ago you attacked the hijab of the Muslim women, and today you attack Shari'ah Law. Neither did you respect your null laws in your country nor did you respect your oppressive conventions with others.

So where is your Democracy which you brag about?

We, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, advise the French government and its people to back away from this aggression and pay attention to their deteriorating economy and interior problems. Do not ask for more problems, and verily, in Americans' consequences, there is a lesson for you.

Ask the Americans, there is none as experienced to be asked. Americans have tasted slaughter in Iraq and Afghanistan enough to make them bite their fingertips in regret. Weigh with your brains if you really care for your selves.

Indeed Muslims are one nation, we are one body. We cannot withstand seeing our brothers being assaulted and oppressed nor do we abscond from defending them from oppressors.

The strength of the mujahideen today is different from yesterday's; their number has multiplied, their battalions have spread. They are loaded with weapons ready for any oppressor.

A collection of quotes from friend and foe

DR. AYMAN ADH-DHAWAHIRY, Al-Qaeda Amir (the Lion of Knowledge and Jihad):

America realizes very well that Al-Qaeda's strength materiality is incomparable to that of the Zio-crusader alliance. It also realizes that the message of the mujahideen in general and that of Al-Qaeda in particular signifies the doom of America, because it is a message of Jihad and martyrdom. A message of putting an end to disgrace and shame. This message has spread among the Muslim ummah which has embraced it with consent and have complied with it.

*

SYRIAN FIGHTER, Mujahid (France 24 News):

We have lived under democracy for forty years. It's not valid in Syria, not valid anywhere. We see France and America themselves suffering from democracy, because it's a set of law made by a bunch of individuals. It is not revealed by Allah, the Almighty.

*

ABDALLA ALAZREG, Sudanese Ambassador to the UK (CNN;Christiane Amanpour):

Sudan is willing to hand over whomever, provided that America hands over Bush and the United Kingdom hands over Blair. I must say, it's a fair point.

(When Christiane Amanpour asked him if his country is willing to handover its president, Omar Al-Bashir, who has been indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court)

*

GREGORY JOHNSEN, Yemen Expert at Princeton University (WNYC News):

There is a tendency in the West to view Al-Qaida as a straightforward terrorist organization whose only goal is to wreak havoc. I think it is a mistake to think that way... Al-Qaeda wants to provide a way of life; it wants to implement its own version of Islamic law.

*

WARREN WEINSTEN, American POW (As-Sahab Media):

I'm 71, am a consultant. I was working in Pakistan when I was captured by the mujahideen. I appealed to the president of United States and the American government to intervene on my behalf and to seek my release. I am a father of two daughters, I have a wife, am a grandfather and I was hoping I would be able to again see my family alive. Unfortunately, president Obama and the American government have shown no interest in my case and did not respond, and in no way tried to be responsive to and accept the demands of the mujahideen. Therefore, as a Jew I am appealing to you prime minister, Netanyahu . . . .as one Jew to another, to please intervene on my behalf, to work with the mujahideen and to accept their demands so that I can be released and return to my family, see my wife, my children and my grandchildren again.

*

ADAM YAHIYE GADAHN, Al-Qaeda Member (Truth has Prevailed):

It was sad to hear the news of the martyrdom of Sheikh Anwar and Samir Khan. We ask Allah to accept them as martyrs and we say innaa lillahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji'un . . . I think America and Barrack Obama in particular have now shown their true colors for all to see. Even American citizens are now targets for the CIA and for the drone strikes. . . This is a wake-up call for Muslims in America. Today American Muslims are being killed in Yemen, tomorrow they are gonna be killed in New York and Los Angeles. . . Get ready for the holocaust!

*

ABU TALHA AL-ALMAANY, Muslim Preacher, Ex-Rapper (Millatu Ibrahim):

We are not in need of veiled scholars. ha. . those who fear the cops breaking into their houses. We do not need coward scholars and spineless preachers. We need not scholars and preachers who are scared of being arrested, those who fear persecution! We do not need scholars and preachers who are scared of being killed! Those are the ones clinging to this world! We do not need those type! Wallahi those should shut up, and get off the minbar! Allahu Akbar!

*

NORMAN SOLOMON, Free Lance Journalist :

When they put bombs in cars and kill people, they're uncivilized killers. When we put bombs on missiles and kill people, we're upholding civilized values. When they kill, they're terrorists. When we kill, we're striking against terror.

*

BRUCE REIDEL, Former CIA Officer (CBS THIS MORNING):

Al Qaeda has now moved to simpler, smaller plots that don't cause as many casualties, but which can still terrorize the West.

*

JOSEPH MASSAD, Arab Politics Teacher New York University (aljazeera.com):

In Yemen, the US has become the new direct absolute ruler of the country, no longer ruling through a dictator agent. They are killing and maiming Yemenis at will under the pretext of fighting the terror of Al-Qaeda. . . The terror that US forces and their ambassador Gerald Feierstein have imposed on the country has been the major achievement of the Obama administration since the Arab revolts started in January 2011.

The recent unplanned and reckless French invasion of Mali is another lost crusade biidhniLLah. The bankrupt French regime entered Mali to topple AnsaruDeen because they implemented Shari'ah. Some people thought François Hollande was a wise man after withdrawing French troops from Afghanistan. But after sending them to the Malian trap, most of the planet's residents became sure that this guy is totally out of his mind!

AlhamduliLLAH, repelling a military expedition, AQAP mujahideen killed more than 100 murtad soldiers, 8 POWs and gained booties including advanced antiaircrafts in Al-Baydhaa governorate south of Sana'a. The mujahideen had no casualties. This comes after the mujahideen have spread into all parts of Yemen.

A French intelligence officer, Dennis Alex, was executed by Harakat Al-Shabaab Al-Mujahideen as a direct result of the French failed rescue operation. France has killed many citizen of her's by trying to 'rescue' them from the mujahideen. When will the kuffar learn not to underestimate the strength of the soldiers of Allah the Almighty?! It's worth mentioning the emergence of AQEA in the East African countries. It's starting to look like another Afghan-Pakistan scenario.

By tawfeeq of Allah then the muslim ethics, Shariah courts, and fair distribution of bread, petrol and gas among Muslims in land of Sham, Jabhatu Nusra, prove to the world that the mujahideen do not win the battles of bullets & shells only, but also the battles of hearts & minds. Mostly that's the real reason that made America list it on the list of 'Foreign terrorist Organization'.

Failure crusaders leaving behind failure traitors. This Khabeeth, Efan Saadoon, the Supervisor of the mercenaries Al Sahwa offices in Iraq was killed along with two of his security escorts in a martyrdom operation executed by A lion mujahid from 'Daulat Ul-Iraq Al-Islamiah' in Fallujah this January.

INSPIRE REACTIONS

Government & Media Responses

"Although Anwar al-Awlaki is dead, his memory and influence live on. A young English speaking Muslim in Great Britain, in America, can dial up his sermons on YouTube (channel), he's easily accessible on the web through DVD, through CDs. So while Awlaki is dead, his influence lives on."

Inspire is back, and it has new ideas for al Qaeda wannabes, chief among them ... uhm -- setting forest fires? Am I reading that correctly?

[ABC News' Randy Krieder]

*

This week, the magazine surprised some when it released a double issue. The glossy, highly produced online magazine has become the Vanity Fair of terrorism. It is clear that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has found new publishing talent.

[Los Angeles Times]

*

The magazine reaches more people than the U.S. government would like, It is hard to get the number, though, because once people get it they turn it into a pdf, they start passing it around. We know from looking at that, at least from when I was in the government, that tens of thousands of downloads happen here in the United States (as well as other countries). They are leveraging the internet and globalization with a pretty high-end product

[Miller, Friday]

*

Israel has suspected that a series of forest fires in 2012 might be linked to Al Qaida supporters.

[Worldtribune]

*

In it (Inspire Magazine) the author uses pictures and diagrams to show readers how to start forest fires in America using what he calls "ember bombs."

"I think the scariest thing about this is the extreme detail in which al Qaeda lays these instructions out. They talk about the correct wind patterns to set a forest fire in. The right season, the right time of year, the correct temperature - all designed to cause the maximum amount of carnage and death."

The article even urges would be terrorists to target the state of Montana.

The instructions are so specific that it has fire experts concerned because of the extreme, dry weather conditions in much of the country now.

"It does not seem all that farfetched," one fire official said. "A wildfire moves quite quickly and can inflict damage. And if people have that intent, it's very frightening."

"Although Anwar al-Awlaki is dead, his memory and influence live on. A young English speaking Muslim in Great Britain, in America, can dial up his sermons on YouTube (channel), he's easily accessible on the web through DVD, through CDs."

"So while Awlaki is dead, his influence lives on."

[Erick Stakelbeck CBN News Terrorism Analyst]

The trial uncovered little evidence that the pair had been directed to carry out their attack by anyone, and what direction they had appeared to have come from Inspire - an English-language jihadist magazine produced by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) with precisely the aim of encouraging and facilitating the kind of 'individual jihad' against the West being planned by the Khans.

The case was merely the latest of a number in Europe and the United States in recent years in which prosecutors have cited the role played by Inspire in facilitating plots by homegrown, grassroots jihadists, and individual jihad waged by lone wolves or hybrid 'lone wolf packs' such as the Khans currently represents a significant potential threat.

Terrorists were inspired by al Qaeda'

Bangalore/New Delhi, Sep 2: Investigators probing the terror module busted in Karnataka have claimed that the arrested 11 youths were inspired by the contents of an online magazine which glorifies activities of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.

[IST]

*

'Inspire' magazine is believed to have been the brainchild of al-Awlaki and Khan was its most prominent editor, leading experts to believe no further editions would be forthcoming after they were killed. But al-Qaeda's media wing released Issue 8 on early Thursday morning

The magazine is designed to attract aspiring jihadis who cannot otherwise read Arabic, and it has been frequently found in the possession of terrorism suspects. It offers instructions on bomb-making, weapons training, security measures as well as encryption lessons for beginners. It also offers extremist heavyweight Qur'anic commentary and rudimentary propaganda.

[WASHINGTON, D.C.]

*

We are happy to see our brothers in Yemen continue with the production of their magazine "INSPIRE". As this magazine motivated us in this work, and we inform that our magazine 'GAIDI MTAANI' is "Inspired by INSPIRE" and we will continue to give the infidels blows until they understand the reality and the weight of Allah's kalimah.

INSPIRE RESPONSES

Responding to Inquiries

E-MAILED QUESTION:

Assalam Aleikum brothers in Inspire Magazine. Is the idea of individual jihad that effective? How does a small operation affect powerful states?

Ramzan Ali

E-MAILED ANSWER:

Walekom Salam brother Ramzan.

Allah the Almighty says,

He also says, [4: 84]

First, the idea of lone jihad is simple and easy. Every Muslim in the kafir enemy's land can carry it out. Its impact is big and great and its means and ways are possible, plentiful and easy to access. For example, a matchbox is plentiful and easy to acquire and use. And the results of these operations are catastrophic and very subduing to the enemy.

These operations are advantageous in several ways:

• The targets are many; hotels, commercial buildings, wooden residences, forests and kuffars' plantations.

• It moves the war into the enemy's territory just like they kill our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Islamic countries, destroying their houses and burning down their plantations.

• It makes the enemy to revise its anti-muslims aggressive policies. When he is hit inside his country because of his war on Islam and occupation of Muslim lands, he is compelled to change his stands. Whoever feels safe from punishment, misbehaves.

• It's difficult for the enemy to provide security for its wide range of targets.

• It's difficult to identify the executor. Hit and run.

• Numerous operations could be done in one day by the very same individual.

• Spreading of insecurity among the population, thus more government sectors are affected.

• Providing security to low profile areas occupies the government's efforts. This destroys its spirit for it has paid a lot for the expensive tools and plans which in return could not guarantee him a 100% security from the assaults of the mujahideen.

In general, if an enemy is strong in one field, he is weak in another. And his weak spot is a reason behind its downfall. Here the simple and easy individual jihad operations come in. They exhaust the enemy, drain his economy and punish him for his actions. And the military budget (which is almost crumbled) will be for Homeland security purposes.

We call all Muslims in the West in general and in the US, UK, France, Denmark, Norway and Italy in particular to embrace this new tactic. And biidhnillah, few operations will unfold the impact.

*

E-MAILED QUESTION:

How do you evaluate drone strikes targeting Al-Qaeda operatives in Yemen?

Isaac

E-MAILED ANSWER:

Drones are weapons like any other. They could be owned by our enemies, AQAP, other jihad groups or individual mujahideen in the West.

But America is using these weapons in Yemen, Waziristan, Libya, Somalia and other Muslim countries cowardly. Instead of using them in the battlefields, they are used in residential areas.

In Yemen, they roam over Muslim houses, terrorizing children, women and the weak. Moreover they bombard 'suspected' targets in villages, towns and cities. Why? Because far from Yemen, in the Whitehouse, Obama took a decision. He decided to start a new chapter, a chapter more savage and barbaric than the previous chapters of the crusade on Yemeni Muslims. A chapter which relies on the strategy of the unmanned drones, 'the strategy of signature strikes'.

This strategy allows officials in the CIA and the PTSD army to carry out attacks on any human, vehicle or building in Yemen if 'suspected' to be a threat to the security of the US without the need to identify the real identity of the target, whether Al-Qaeda or not. This includes women and children. Just because an American 'feels' this person poses danger. Whenever they have this 'feeling' they order for a 'Hell Fire missile' to be launched. These missiles are usually carried by the unmanned drones to kill this or that target cold-bloodedly.

Of course! Obama is declaring a crusade! These missiles have no eyes and their launchers are more blind. They kill civilians more than mujahideen.

They kill civilians intentionally and the next day we see 'CNN and ABC' acting as wikileaks and report a 'classifeid' operation in Yemen "US has killed a key Al-Qaeda figure," who in fact is an old woman going to the hospital or a young man going to work.

After all that, they claim they have a noble cause. They want nations to imitate them. They legitimize their war on AQAP. If this war on AQAP is that noble, why does it have to be that secretive? Why don't they declare this war on Yemen just like they did in Afghanistan and Iraq? Why don't they come and face the mujahideen like men instead of killing civilians indiscriminately? Where is their acclaimed value - if they have any?

The mujahideen have announced their war on America including their civilians. How could their civilians live in peace while our's are suffering? The equation should be balanced. Like they kill, they will be killed.

Don't they say in the Ballot system it's a government ruled by the people? So their rulers (people) should pay for their country's action till they change their system and foreign policies. Why don't America accept this clear fact that it kills civilians for being Muslims?

By the Grace of Allah, their blind weapons are backfiring. The more strikes they launch, the more the mujahideen are embraced by the people and more tribes are making pledges of alliances to the mujahideen.

In Yemen the general public knows their enemy is America. They know its crimes and hatred towards Muslims. They support jihad against America. Their children, brothers and fathers are the mujahideen.

Lastly, these drones are just another failure of America's foreign policies and of military supremacy and a living evidence of America's crumbling economy which cannot engage in a direct war.

THE CORNER | The Untold Story

ABU NUH, YEMEN

Kismayu in Somalia, Waqaar in Yemen, Timbuktu in Mali, the three once happy cities share one similar sad story. A story unjustly concealed by pro-Western media - almost all news agencies. The change of system, from the best to the worst, from heavenly to manly, from Shari'ah to 'Demon-cracy'.

The flags of Tawheed were high up, deen was the first priority. Security was tight, and the Judicial system was just, and which law could be more just than the Law of Allah? The children were happily playing in the fields, parents feared no thugs no molesters. Goods were safe, whether the owner was there or away. Prayers were a must, "It is almost a serial scene in this part of town," Ghait Abdel Ahed says, "all the shops are empty, opened, no people inside, yet no one is stealing, no one is taking everything." (sic) (Frontline - when people left their shops open for prayers in the masjid in Waqaar). After salaam the believers came out of the masajid fresh; full of energy and enthusiasm. Bliss and happiness, glee and prosperity, peace and tranquillity, these are the blessings of Shari'ah!

Wait a minute! Who governs these cities? The world asked curiously, hoping to adopt the same system . "It's the mujahideen, Al-Qaeda's affiliates." The world's tone changed. "This endangers the region's security," said the world's police force, United Snakes of America. The enemies of Allah congregated, men and demons, they had to do something. What is the next step? They acted 'heroic' ready to save the day. They collected their puppets, 'Muslim' rulers. They prepared their weapons. By air, by sea and by land they advanced, tens of thousands to displace the mujahideen, no, to displace Shari'ah Law.

The mujahideen retreated from these cities, they could not risk weakening themselves, that's the enemies' goal. They had to drain the enemies' energy. A war of attrition. Let them in, and they will leave not, it is not a matter of choice. Ask about Kabul, and the US will explain.

The flags of Tawheed were brought down. "At last, the residents are free from terrorists", the world announced. The people are 'liberated', they can now taste the 'fruits' of democracy.

Now these cities have a new situation, gangs of thieves and murderers have also invaded the cities, they are enjoying their democratic freedom too. Displaced people are more than the settled. Parents should always accompany their children, rapists and kidnappers are back! Traders have to trade and provide security too for their own goods, if they glance away their wealth will also go away. Insecurity and tension prevail, shops are broken down. The law is unjust; survival for the fittest - the jungle law. Women fear for their honor. This is the democracy the kuffar fight for.

This is the sad story of the three once blessed cities, it is the story of many others too.

*

QUESTIONS | we should be asking

• Why do we witness an increase in the number of green on blue attacks - Afghan police attacking invading forces?

• "An apple fell from a tree, and Newton discovered the law of gravity; thousands of martyrs fell in Palestine, Syria and Burma. Haven't Muslims discovered any new law? (from Syrian protesters)

• Imams killed in Mombasa, Imams killed in Lagos, Imams killed in Bamako. Is this the crusaders' new strategy in Africa?

• How is America planning to police the world while it can't control guns in its country? 'NRA', ha?

Defending the Prophet

SHEIKH DR. AYMAN ADHAWHIRY

In the name of Allah I start. All praise is due to Him and may His peace and blessings be upon our beloved Prophet, his family, companions and his followers.

Oh my fellow Muslims in every part of the world, Assalam 'Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. To proceed:

America has allowed the production of a film which commits blasphemy against the Prophet, under the pretext of freedom of expression. But this freedom declamation did not stop Americans from torturing Muslim prisoners in Bagram, Abu Ghuraib, Guantanamo and other secret prisons. May the blessings of Allah be upon those, enthusiastic Muslims, who torched the American Embassy in Benghazi, those who protested in front of the US Embassy in Cairo, those who replaced the American flag with the flag of Islam and Jihad. I call upon them to continue to confront the Zio-American crusade on Islam and Muslims. And I call upon all Muslims to follow their example.

This is not the first incident of its type, rather it represents a recurring mode practiced by the US soldiers in Guantanamo, Bagram, Iraq and Afghanistan.

America, whose laws permit assaulting the Prophet and the Holy Quran un der the pretext of freedom of expression, is convicting those who offend jews as abhorrent criminals. It is the one who inhumanely tortures Muslim prisoners. It is the one who extradites Muslim prisoners to their respective countries to be tortured. America is the one who supports Israel in all of its crimes and its president prayed in front of the Wailing Wall and he declared his affirmation of making Al-Quds (Jerusalem) the capital of Israel in support of the jews in the judaization of Al-Quds.

We do not want to deceive ourselves; we are facing a Zio-crusade war which is being led by America. And in confronting this war and in defense of the Muslim ummah the mujahideen carried out the blessed operations of New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

Therefore, we call upon every honorable free enthusiastic Muslim to confront the Ziocrusade alliance which assaults our religion, our Prophet Muhammad and our lands and wealth.

There must be confrontation against this alliance by hand, tongue, word and action. America and Israel should know that the Muslim ummah has woken up, and its mujahid vanguard will not overlook their (Zio-Crusaders) crimes.

My Muslim ummah, the Zio-crusader alliance does not know, does not understand and does not respond except to the language of force. And if we do not become forceful, then the assaults on our religion, our Prophet and our land will continue.

We should be strong in fighting, in politics, in ideas, in da'wah and preaching.

We should confront America, Israel and the assaulting West. We should aid whoever confronts them, and we should differentiate between the Christians who assault us and our Prophet and those who offer us peace.

O Muslim Ummah, your sons, the mujahideen, have promised Allah to confront this Zio-crusade campaign on Islam's sacred lands and wealth until your chests are healed from those who have offended, fought and robbed you.

So, O zealous sons of Islam in every corner of this earth, support your Prophet and Allah will support you, take revenge on each and every one who has assaulted or made blasphemy against him.

*

THE DUST WILL NEVER SETTLE DOWN

May my mother be bereaved for you, To bring the final end to kuffar, And may Allah raise an army too, For insulting you with their tongues too far.

Your rights will no doubt be fulfilled, With the same sword that killed, The kuffar whose tongue were too lean, And Maslamah brought this deen victory.

Our Maulah never disappointed us, We will never wait for the rulers that fuss, To give us permission to defend you, We are in rush of the best sunnah.

Who will give support to Rasulullah, And give the kuffar nothing but war? Rushing to the most blessed deed, Will implant Islam's seed.

Who will fly in the winds of glee, And attack the kuffar as a group of bees? Tomorrow can never be greeted, Until we see that you are righted.

The fire we bring them is nothing compared, To what is with Him, Oh Ya Rabb! Our punishment is by bullets and bombs, And Allah's hastising greater than that!

Assassinating the enemy of Allah, Will shed blood for Rasulullah, When will his rights be realized, By the sprinters to the paradise?

And how strange are those munafiquun, Who cut their ties with mu'minuun, By showing alliance to your enemies, Lying on you that this is sunnah! And how they love to appease!

Their deen as soft as cheese, Selling their religion for pleasure, Is what they seek in life's leisure.

And how strange are these munafiqeen, Allowing kuffar to desensitize muslimeen, And speaking out every night, Against fulfilling your given right!

The cheesy 'Aqeedah is powerless, When we strike the kuffar's necks, Killing them with every opportunity, For bringing them death is prosperity!

My Rasul did I please him, If my house I didn't leave for him, To rush to the people of whim, Against those who have their hearts dim?

My Rasul did I please him, If I kept being like everyone else? Unless if I jolted to his defense, Against those who have no sense.

My lord wouldn't be as pleased to see me, As the one who killed for His Nabii, So building blacklists to hunt them down, And the dust will never settle down.

Written by the martyred Brother: Samir Zafar Khan (may Alah accept his martyrdom)

France, the Imbecile Invader

Abu Abdillah Almoravid

The Western crusaders tend - if not pretend - to forget historical facts. They do not want to learn from the defeats they gulped since their first crusades against Muslims in the 11th century. We do not have to recount that history. And those incidents are enough a proof to the crusaders that our muslim ummah is capable of inflicting them with heavy defeats in spite of the difference of weapons and numbers, which have always been at their advantage.

On the dawn of 2013, France underestimated the catastrophic consequences it will face. It stupidly announced a crusade on the Muslim Mali for declaring a Muslim state governed by the Shari'ah of Allah. It announced its crusade for Mali has 'violated' human rights by banning music and adultery. What a stupid move!

It would have been appropriate for France to remember the lessons from its colonial era and how it faced jihad, force and resistance especially in Algeria. France should have taken into consideration the blessed jihad incidents against Italy in the early last century, when it occupied Libya. France should remember the guerilla war fought under the leadership of the Lion of the Desert, Omar Mukhtar. France should have backed away and retire after it has gulped the bitterness of defeat in Afghanistan in the hands of the Taliban mujahideen. It should have turned its attention to its crumbling economy especially that the Euro Zone is in a deep recession as a result of a decade plus war in Afghanistan and Iraq. France should have comprehended that the jihadi movements in the Muslim world, especially Al-Qaeda, are stronger than to be beaten in a rapid deployment. There are many considerations which it had to put into its mind before engaging in a direct war in Mali.

And if it does not mind all these consideration in the Path of defending 'freedom of nations' and 'human rights' as it claims, then where is it from the Syrian revolution? Does Bashar Al-Asad respect human rights which France claims to defend? Where is it from the massacres in Burma? Where is it from Palestine which is bombarded day and night? Which freedom and rights is it talking about? The freedom of living in peace with adequate resources? Or the freedom of adultery, homosexuality, interest and other impurities? Where is its 'freedom of conscience' when it banned Niqab of the Muslim women? Is raping, killing and looting part of the freedom it fights for as we have seen in Mali in the first weeks of your invasion in the deeds of your troops.

As for the Mujahideen, their strategic notion is that the West is losing its prestige and its military and technical superiority whenever it deploys ground boots in a muslim land. Our notion is that the West is losing the components of strength, influence and augustness when it falls and its economy is exhausted. And nothing exhausts the economy like a long bloody war, moreover in a warzone like the deserts of Mali. Our notion is that the Muslim ummah which has brought forth millions of martyrs in the way of fighting the crusader occupier in the colonial era is the same ummah which will support jihad with men and wealth in this era, but this time the support will be bigger and greater. Greater because the ummah has become more connected and bonded. Greater because the ummah has freed itself from the influence of the tyrants in the Arab Spring.

Almost all political and military analysts are predicting an ineluctable catastrophe will hit France and whoever allies it in this war. Even her dear rotten Britain are calling it a hasty decision. Yes, it is a hasty decision to engage in such a dangerous war and face terrors of the 'African terra incognita'. I wonder how your spoiled boys will manage to last a battle in the dry terrains of the Muslim Mali.

The French crusade on Mali is certainly connected to the historic crusades, and definitely its result won't defer from its predecessors. So, why is France so thick in learning from its past mistakes? Is it leaving Paris undefended once again to engage in a war away from home? Woe upon you from tens of Muhammad Merah!

JIHADISPHERE:

Reviewing important books and articles concerning the ummah

THIS IS OUR 'AQEEDAH

Author: Sheikh Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi

"This is our 'Aqeedah. Whoever possesses two eyes then let him read and whoever possesses hearing then let him listen!"

Sheikh Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisy (may Allah hasten his release), is a well known scholar who needs no introduction. His works, especially in 'Aqeedah (creed), have earned a great acceptance in the Muslim world in general and among the mujahideen in particular.

In this book, Sheikh Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisy expounds on the 'Aqeedah of Ahlus-Sunah. His words are based on the verses of the Quran and the authentic Ahadeeth of the Prophet. "This is a summary of what we believe in and what we worship Allah with from the most important areas of the din . . I wrote it in my jail cell after it had reached me that there were some people who were ascribing things to us and putting words in our mouths that we have never said; in particular, in the areas of Kufr and Iman."

The author takes us on a journey inside our hearts, showing us what to believe in. He begins with the Tawheed of Allah, His Names and Attributes. He then explains the pillars of Iman and the creed of Iman and Kufr. He talks about democracy and its kufr. He argues democracy is a religion made by man for man. He clarifies more topics regarding muslim creed.

The Sheikh ends his book with Jihad and its rulings - an issue regarded controversial today by the 'moderate' 'civilized' Muslims - "Jihad is continuous with every group of the Muslims and the person can wage jihad by himself or with the leaders, be they pious or corrupt, until the Day of Judgment." He then explains the rulings regarding the present rulers who rule by other than what Allah has revealed, as this is a crucial topic among the scholars of this era. While the issue's ruling enjoyed a consensus among the salaf (pious predecessors), today's government scholars have changed the scales to please their masters.

The Sheikh is currently imprisoned in Jordan because of his 'Aqeedah. We ask Allah to make him steadfast and make him a reason for others to follow the Islamic pure 'Aqeedah.

A must read book, educative and manifestive, beneficial and straight forward. this is our 'aqeedah gives the clear truth searched for by many. The author does not conceal any issue. He speaks only of what was agreed upon by the great salaf, in so doing he has written a book of outstanding power and insight. *

Brother 'Askar, Abu Yazeed Al-Qatary

by Abu Ziyad Al-Muhaji

Abu Yazeed Al-Qatari, 'Askar a young man in his early 20's with high morals and a generous heart. A brother of Yemeni origin who lived most of his life in Qatar. He came from a respectable family who supported him and encouraged him to travel abroad to the UK to complete his studies in his passion, Science.

After spending some time as a student and witnessing first-hand the hypocrisy of the West, Allah the Exalted opened his heart for Jihad in His path. He used to relate about the shallowness of the people, how their lives revolved around the hollow pursuit of happiness in the form of hoarding wealth. Greed became their creed and as a result their relationships with even their own families became one of dislike and distrust. So he finally decided to pack his bags and search for the green birds. And with that he turned his face to the land of Iman and Hikmah, his country of origin, Yemen.

He landed in Sana'a and being of Yemeni origin himself, he easily blended in. Allah protected him from the eyes of the apostates. After being patient and making du'a, Allah granted him Tawfeeq and allowed him to meet the brothers he so longed for... The mujahideen.

As he had wide knowledge of the language and customs of the West. He quickly came to the Inspire team and became great friends with Samir Khan and Sheikh Anwar, even spending time together with them camping in the deserts.

But as with all mujahideen he had a burning desire to see some action. And with that he joined the fight against the murtadeen in Abyan. He was quickly spotted for his skills and leadership talent and was given the position of supervisor at an Abyan training camp. He realized that victory is in the hands of Allah and thus he used to say "The best of weapons is the weapon of the heart."

After the martyrdom of our beloved brothers Sheikh Anwar and Samir Khan, he had to return to the Inspire team where he wrote the eulogy of brother Samir in the 9th issue. He poured his heart into the article, tears streaming down his cheeks as he wrote it. He also spoke about the brothers in the film Shaheed Da'wah.

He understood the importance of physical fitness in the life of a Mujahid. Being a trained boxer he was extremely fit and healthy. He really was a diligent sincere brother. He had a noble generous heart always buying treats for the brothers whenever he could. All loved and cherished his company.

After the completion of the 9th issue of Inspire, his heart once again burned for the sound of drumming guns and ringing ears. On that very same day, the imbecile Yemeni army with brains of pigeons were shelling Zinjibar randomly with their tanks, trying to break through the brothers' defences. Abu Yazeed with some brothers advanced courageously to repel the attack. The advance ultimately repelled the enemies but our beloved brother was struck by a tank projectile leaving nothing except a small piece of his body. He gave his life defending the religion of Allah and found those green birds he came looking for. Ah the joy of finding the object of your desire and seeing the Face of your Lord. The price of Jannah in not cheap and the best currency to use is that of spilled blood, red in color, misk in scent. May the mercy of Allah be showered upon him, we all miss his company and ask Allah to accept his shahada.

The Jihadi Experiences

The Strategy of Deterring with Terrorism

Abu Mus'ab Al-Suri

Allah the Almighty has said, [8: 60]

And Allah the Almighty has said, >If you gain mastery over them in war, disperse with them those who follow them so that they may remember.> [8: 57]

Resisting invasion of Muslim lands is fardh 'ain (individual obligation) on every Muslim who is able to, using all of his means. Resistance can simply be defined as 'a war against the invaders.' Methods of employing this resistance usually involve tactics such as skirmishing and terrorism.

However nowadays there is not only one type of enemy. There are the primary enemies such as America, Israel or England and then there are the secondary enemies such as general non-Muslim states and the lackey puppet governments which populate our lands. These secondary enemies enter the fight usually from fear of punishment or financial incentive from the primary enemies.

The mujahideen or the 'resistance', must not neglect the importance of deterring these enemies. They must strive to create an impression that its long arm is ready to reach out and slap anyone who thinks about taking part in any aggression. Generally most of our enemies, from the president to the grunts to the puppets, are in fact cowardly rats. And most of them can be deterred if a strong example is set by striking and punishing a few of them. This deterrence has the desired effect of the withdrawal of those engaged or the prevention of those thinking of joining.

The basic idea is that every state that arrests a mujahid, a brother, an Imam and imprisons him or turns him over to America is to immediately receive a 'deterrence operation' carried out by any Muslim able to do so as a religious duty. Any acts of aggression by invading forces against our fellow beloved Muslim brothers and sisters must be met with an equally deterring action as Allah the Almighty has said, [2: 194].

The goal is that these deterrence operations will break the bonds of their criminal alliance and the struck party will consider it more beneficial to part with America.

This can be seen by the successful deterrence operation carried out by a Mujahideen unit in Spain on March 11th 2004. A series of explosives were planted in the Madrid subway system which according to Spain's own statistics killed 200 and injured 1700. The main results of this blessed operation were as follows:

1. It completely changed Spanish public opinion. Statistics show that 3 days before the parliamentary elections, public support was swung in favor of the then ruling right-wing party which was allied with America and had contributed around 2000 Spanish troops to Iraq. The bombings immediately changed public support in favor of the opposing socialist party who opposed the war in Iraq with the leader of the socialist party, Zapatero, promising to withdraw all Spanish forces if his party won. This led to their victory in the elections and thus the blessed operations toppled a hostile government. America lost a major ally by a single deterrence operation alone, at the cost of several martyrs may Allah accept and bless them.

2. After the withdrawal of all Spanish forces from Iraq. The Honduras who were also a secondary enemy, fighting only because of being compelled to by the Americans, after seeing the withdrawal of Spain, hastened to retreat also.

3. The entire European-American alliance was shaken with a number of countries stating their departure or limiting the time they would stay on. Thus this single deterrence operation led to the withdrawal and scaling down of many international forces and was considered one of the first real deterrence operation since the beginning of American aggression in the first Gulf war.

However concerning these operations there are some factors which must be taken into consideration so as to ensure their success. The welfare of the Muslims must be held in the highest esteem. Good targets are places where Muslims should not be such as places of sin, night clubs as in Bali, marde gras, Riba based financial centers as in the Twin Towers. Targeting political parties or organizations that persecute Muslims.

Why must these deterrence attacks be carried out?

During the first Gulf War in 1991, more than 300,000 people were killed.

In Iraq, the 13 years of economic sanctions that followed more than 1.5 million children died from easily prevented diseases. In the recent Iraqi war to topple Saddam, more than 10,000 were killed and tens of thousands are still imprisoned in Iraqi government (Shia) torture chambers not to mention the abuses carried out by the Americans themselves.

Thousands have been killed in Palestine with the Zionist butchers still rampaging. More than 200,000 Bosnian Muslims were slaughtered in the worst case of European genocide since world war II. More than 60,000 cases of rape were registered there, let alone those that were too ashamed to do so. In Chechnya, more than 300,000 Muslims were massacred, their honor violated, houses destroyed with thousands imprisoned and hundreds of thousands made refugees. In Afghanistan, tens of thousands were killed in the December 2001 invasion by the Americans in blind rage, most were innocent civilians. Guantanamo has been filled with not only with your mujahideen brothers but also with hundreds of innocent civilians. All being tortured and subjected to the most despicable crimes. The list goes on and on with Christian aggression in Indonesia, the Philippines and Africa, Buddhist aggression in Burma and Thailand, Hindu aggression in Gujarat and Kashmir. In every corner of the ummah there is oppression.

How many mujahideen or even normal Muslims are held without trial, often for decades, in Muslim countries. The number is at least 100,000. Saudi Arabia alone has at least 30,000. In the non-Muslim lands Imams have been imprisoned, politically active brothers abducted - as was the case with the Egyptian sheikh Abu Omar Al-Misri kidnapped inside Italy by the CIA to be tortured in Egypt. Masjids and Islamic centers have been torched, Muslim immigrants illegally assassinated.

So the question has to be asked, who really are the terrorists? The truth is that we have an embarrassingly low share of it. We are pretty much at the bottom of the list, being ourselves the most terrorized of all people.

Then came the September 11th events, in order to repel the Zionistfriendly West and the Americans, collecting a small amount of the enormous bill that they owe. The world rose, and has not lain down yet!!

The self-proclaimed philosophers will babble to us talking about the blood of the sinless, those who were promised protection, the civilians and the Muslims disloyal to the hypocrite clerics... until the last claim by evil jurists...

The reality is that the jihadi Resistance... only targets those who deserve to be deterred by terrorism, only those who should be liquidated, and only those who deserve punishment according to divine decrees and legal regulations on Earth. The Resistance even avoids many of those deserving this deterrence, in order to avoid negative effects (for Muslims) and promote their welfare.

Let me add: It is not possible for a few jihadi organizations, or for tens or hundreds of mujahidun here and there, to deter this fierce international attack... It is absolutely necessary that the Resistance transforms into a strategic phenomenon... after the pattern of the Palestinian intifada against the occupation forces, the settlers and their collaborators... but on a broader scale, originally comprising the entire Islamic world. Its arms of deterrence should reach into the homes of the American invaders and their allies of infidels from every nationality and in every place.

The Islamic Nation must start moving... with all its segments, towards Resistance and deterrence.

Other Important Targets for Individual Jihad

B) The American and allied interests in the third world countries: Especially in those countries participating in the Crusader campaign. This is due to their weak security capabilities, compared with the security regulations that the Western countries implement in their own countries. Jihad in these countries rests fundamentally on the shoulders of the mujahidun who basically reside in those countries, and live a normal life there. This helps them in moving, hiding, gaining knowledge of the targets and dealing with them in an easy manner.

C) In European countries allied with America and participating with her in the war: This is due to the presence of old and large Islamic communities in Europe. Their number exceeds 45 million, and there are communities of millions in Australia, Canada and South America as well.

Especially in Europe, because of its closeness to the Arab and Islamic world, and the inter-twining of interests between them, and because of all the movement and transportation between the two. The Muslims in those countries are like Muslims everywhere; the religious duty of jihad, of repelling the enemy and resisting him, rests on their shoulders in exactly the same way as for Muslims in their own countries i.e. Muslims residing in the Arab and Islamic world.

Action in Europe and those countries must be subjected to the rules of political benefits versus political harms, judged against the positions of the European governments. At the same time, one has to adopt a strategy of winning the support of the people, and avoid harming them.

The American Army & War Ethics

Sheikh Abu Yahya Al-Libi

All praise due to Allah and may His peace and mercy be upon His Messenger, Muhammad, his family, companions and those who follow them until the day of judgment. Muslim brothers, Assalam Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Allah has conveyed to us that one of the reasons for ordaining Jihad is to test you. If Allah had willed He could have taken vengeance upon the Kuffar by punishing them and exterminating them instantly but He has chosen to leave them until an appointed time.

This test is the battle between the camp of Tawheed and the camp of Kufr; the allies of Allah and the allies of Shaytan.

The allies of Shaytan have disease in their hearts. This disease manifests itself with their jealousy and plotting against those who believe. With their total hate of Allah's guidance and His laws. Allah says about them

The infidels are slaves of their own lust, Allah informs us in the Holy Quran:

Allah also says:

This is their status in Islam, livestock. With no minds except to fulfill their carnal desires. Who else but livestock would oppose Allah, his Creator? Who else would barter away his eternal place in paradise for a few hours of supposed enjoyment, fighting against Allah and inviting to it?

They may present a friendly face but their dead hearts boil with enmity towards the believers. Whenever they are given a chance they do not hesitate to inflict whatever torture they can. This has been their way since the beginning. Allah says:

Allah has warned against liking and trusting them

Whoever sees their recurring crimes, various atrocities and opportunism to attack Islam and Muslims, the verses of Allah strengthen his Iman and submission, if not, he should blame none but himself.

The burning of copies of the Holy Quran in Bagram Base isn't the first of their crimes, nor is it the last. As the incident of urinating over the bodies of the martyrs preceded it by just three weeks.

They covered it, they undervalued the damage because it doesn't express the ethics of the American military.

What a mockery! Do the sordid American military has ethics to begin with?! Then how could this not be ethical?!

We've seen livestock and beasts before, so have we lived many years with this army's soldiers and recruits; never have we seen as shameful, disgraceful, as vile as these criminals! To the extent, their intelligence interrogators sometimes are feeling shame from what they see and hear from their soldiers; they would apologize for that savagery: "we hope the soldiers' behavior won't give you the wrong picture of the American people, these are the garbage of the society." If the soldiers are the garbage, then the intelligence are the garbage of the garbage, since they have no value, no principles, no shame.

From the US Prisons

The Blind Sheikh Omar Abdur-Rahman

My message and will to the blessed muslim nation:

Oh honorable brothers! Oh Muslims in all parts of the world!

Surely the US government has found in my imprisonment an opportunity; an opportunity to defile the honor of a Muslim, snatching away his dignity and respect. They've placed me under siege, not only physically, but also psychologically.

I've been placed in isolation. I've been forbidden contact with any Arabic speakers. Days, weeks, months pass and there's no one I can talk to, and no one to talk to me. I've been deprived of everything inside my cell even media players or a radio. If it wasn't for the recitation of the Quran, I would have had many physiological problems. In this oppressive siege, cameras are included throughout my cell. They monitor me continuously throughout the day, they even watch me washing my private parts during bathing and using the toilet. They don't stop there, they exploit my blindness to achieve their vile objectives, for they frisk me by stripping off my clothes, just as I was born, and look at my private parts, front and rear. What do they search for? Drugs and explosives? This happens before and after every visit. This is so shameful, it makes me prefer the earth to split in half and swallow me whole over their filthy actions. But as I said, to them this is an opportunity they seized to defile the dignity of a Muslim and his honor on this earth. I am also prevented from performing Jumu'a prayers, Eid and any contact with other Muslims! All of this is forbidden to me! They give me false justifications and they make up null excuses.

The prison wardens neglect my personal condition e.g. haircuts and nail-cutting for months. They also force me to wash my underwear. I soak, wash, rinse and hang it, I find it hard! Moreover, I feel the danger of this situation. For surely, they will kill me... they will! Especially now that I'm separated from the world. No one sees what they add in my food, my drink! They could use a slow method to kill me, they could poison my food or medicine or inject me with something. They could drug me with something which would kill me or drive me crazy.

My brothers, if they kill me - which they will - escort my Janazah, and deliver my corpse to my family. But never forget my blood, never forsake it! Instead take revenge upon them for me in the most severest and violent of manners! And remember that a brother of yours spoke the truth and was killed in the path of Allah.

These few words are my testament to you.

Wassalamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Islam: The Solution to Racism

"America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white, but the white attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practised by all together, irrespective of their color."

MY WISH

If only I was a mujahid

Since childhood, in my heart, I have had this wish, this desire, this longing,

Oh! If only I was a Mujahid!

I would keep my trousers above my ankles,

My face would be decorated with the Sunnah of Rasul Allah,

A middle parting I would have in my hair.

Upon my shoulder I would carry a rocket launcher and in my hand there would be a Kalashnikov,

A bomb would adorn my chest and the band of laa ilaaha illa Allah would be across my forehead,

Then, crossing the blood-stained valley I would launch myself into the thick of battle.

Shouting Allahu Akbar I would attack His enemies,

Each of them I would eliminate, one by one, avenging the blood of my Shaheed brothers,

I would free the weak from tyranny and oppression,

Yes! This is the Mujahid I would be!

A Mujahid who would pile up the bodies of the enemy, like Khalid Bin Walid (ra),

Who would shatter the idols, like Mahmood Ghazanwi,

Who would battle against the crusaders like, Salaahuddin Ayyubi.

And then... fighting Jihad, I would become Shaheed......

But, Alas! This cannot be!

For a lion-hearted Mujahid warrior I am not,

In fact...I am a fragile woman...

Women of the Glorious Ummah

Umm Yahya

I entered a large society. I walked through its districts and roamed its squares. I wanted to explore its condition and discover its hiding places. I realized that there is no need to explore, for its doors are open and its secrets exposed. So I asked about my fellow sisters.

I saw them deceived by fake appearances, running after new trends with fake slogans, competing with each other so each one could say, "I am the best."

You see them walking freely in the markets, lost in the streets, wasting money. At weddings, they are clothed but naked, showing off their expensive dresses, high heels, and diamond jewellery sets. You see them wearing new dresses at every gathering and they boast with their phones, in their brilliant colors, and advanced styles for fame.

We see the extravagance and wastefulness in every corner. They closed the doors upon themselves and pulled their curtains so they do not get disturbed by painful cries of our sisters in jail or disturbed by yells of the many orphaned children.

It is like they were created for themselves, they've been deceived by dunya and its fancy glitter and temporary enjoyments, and they forget or pretend to forget that they have a family other than their real family, sisters other than their real sisters. They are tied to them by the best humanly bonds.

We see men killed, imprisoned by oppressors, and a destructive order. We see women who live in fear and hunger in homes that are lifeless after the parting of the loved ones, and the absence of the guardian; darkened environments as a result of the cutoff light and the destruction. She fears the enemy's soldiers will break down the door, and tear up the protective cover of her child. She wipes away the tears of a desperate poor child. Violent hunger is in his stomach. He sleeps in the open air without cover and can't find anything warm except his mother's embrace. He cannot sleep without being awoken by the sound of artilleries. All this is the result of the enemy who ran over our lands with oppression and force, with power, hatred and enmity; stealing and robbing.

We see blood being spilt, imprisonment, persecution and destruction; and still, these women have closed their balconies, and turned away their hearts. Until when this desertion? And until when this heedlessness and forgetfulness?

O sister, how do you sleep comfortably while there eyelids are kept awake by the enemies' hands?

And how do you enjoy living luxuriously while your brothers go through what they go through from tragedies and severe trials?

How do you enjoy life when your sisters go through what would rob the bedfellow of sleep and disturb the ears that hear?

O descendant of Khadijah, Asmaa and Aisha... Isn't it time for you to realize that in dunya there is life and death, truth and falsehood, trials and ease, strike and revenge, Islam and Kufr?

Who from among the women today carries the worries of the Ummah? Which one among the women cried over the fall of Qandahar?

By Allah, you don't see among the women except those who cry over love, and are not the least pained over that which befalls this Deen and its people!!

I know you might ask, what am I to do? I am just but a fragile woman.

There are times when we feel worthless. We feel as if we have no value in this society, as if we are there for no reason. We begin to dismiss our worth and dismiss our self-appreciation because we do not know what it is. We struggle with inability to understand who we are, and surely that only comes from our lack of faith. It comes from struggling to be accepted by society as I stated above and dying to 'fit in'. and when we do "fit in" we lose the most valuable part of ourselves; we become robots. We become robots whose only goal is to be exactly like everyone else. And that is when it becomes obvious that our goal becomes to please others, instead of pleasing Allah. Thus we forget our true identity.

It is your duty to be a part of this ummah. So what about your place? Where do you stand in this rapidly growing ummah? Every scholar started with little knowledge. Every motivator was previously inspired by someone else. Every imam had to attend classes to earn his title. Every leader began as a follower and took the initiative to stand on his own feet . So my sister don't just attend a lecture, be the speaker. Don't wait for the author to write, be the author. Don't just be a part of the ummah, help improve it. The Prophet did all that he could for the ummah. Even on the day of judgment while everyone is looking out for themselves, he will be crying for the Ummah. He will be saying ummatii! Ummatii! My ummah! My ummah! Follow the lead of Rasulullah and look out for your ummah.

O sister, you have to wake up the hearts of the men, and arouse the determination of the heroes, and say, "We refuse humiliation and subjection, misery or subservience; and we want to be free from having to bow to the cross worshippers.

You have to push your loved ones to the battlefield. The Lord of the worlds is more deserving that we sacrifice what is most beloved to us for His sake, from our lives, and our wealth.

I say to you my Muslim sister, the least that is expected from you is when the men leave for Jihad, that you stay patient and are pleased by Allah's orders. And that you are cautious that you do not repel others from the Path of Allah, and that you do not become an obstacle on their way to paradise, Allah's pleasure.

So be like Al-Khansaa, Nusaybah Bint Ka'b and Safiyyah Bint 'Abd al-Muttalib whose examples can still be found in our times, those who sought to lift the humiliation and shame from the forehead of the ummah, and raise the banner of victory for Islam and the Muslims with the blood of their sons, and sought to stop the spread of kufr in the lands of Islam and its people.

O sister, why don't you become the example of Umm Suraaqah? And what do you know about Umm Suraaqah?

She sent her son for Jihad in Afghanistan, and when he was martyred, the mujahideen said, "how do we inform her about her son's death?" So they said, "if Sheikh Abdullah Azzam talks to her it will lighten her burden." So Sheikh Azzam called her and gave her the glad tidings of her son's Shahada and he told her words of comfort and patience, but she didn't need those words at all, it was as if she was waiting for this news with longing. So she replied to the sheikh, "Alhamdulillah for Suraaqah's martyrdom. In a week, Inshallah, I will send you his brother to replace him."

O mother of the upcoming generation, it is your obligation and responsibility to teach and enlighten your children. They are the precious gems in your life. They are your amanah and responsibility. You should teach them about Islam and give them its history so that they can learn to love their deen and get ready to fight for the sake of it.

Above all, you should immunize them from falsification and deception regarding our true victorious deen. Encourage them to seek knowledge which will benefit the Muslim nation. On top of it all, you should put sense into the minds of your family and the community at whole.

I quote what Shaykh Abu Qatada said, "The woman is the essence of our Ummah, and any shortcoming from her is a true defeat". It is you my sister who is the essence of this blessed ummah. So have patience, be faithful and have a true determination towards Islam and jihad. Our sisters and mothers in Palestine are miracles of Allah in all of this, and some of them are unequalled by hundreds of mujahid men in their struggle and patience. Likewise, we see in the Gulf countries awareness among the women that is much stronger than what is with the men, and purity of heart in supporting the Mujahideen that we do not see from men. So, all praise is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds. As for the West, the wives of the non-Arab brothers have Islam, faith, and awareness that we rarely see with the men. As for the wives of the Arab immigrants, they are generally much better and purer than their husbands."

Lastly, the utmost love, respect, and appreciation belongs to you believing mother, sister, daughter. And for the patient mujahideen's wives and mothers, all love, prayers, and gratitude are dedicated to you. Were it not for you, we would be nothing, and there would be no future for our children.

My dear sister in Islam. There are times when you are wrapped up in worldly gains and tend to forget about your role and part in this growing ummah.

Times where nothing matters to you except little quarrels between you and your friends.Times where you force yourself to believe no one out there is better than you. Times you feel there is no one with such and heavy burdens than you . . . Our everyday life struggle is nothing compared to the agony and pain of our sisters in Palestine, Burma, Syria, Somalia and Afghanistan.

There is so much more within your reach than the narrow path that you have carved for yourself. You are not like others, you are a strong-willed muslimah who wants to build a nation that says no to oppression. A muslimah who wants to abide by the rules of Allah.

Why Did I Choose Al Qaeda?

Shaykh Abu Musab Al-Awlaki

Today's Reasons:

The Hadeeth of Al-Malahem

Their leaders remind us of the ummah's great leaders The Hadeeth of Al-Malahem (fierce battles):

This Hadeeth talks about 3 regions:

Sham, Khurasaan & Adan Abyan.

The Prophet said: (Sham includes Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine)

When we compare the situation in these places twenty years ago and now , we see great changes. Changes for a better Islamic nation. Two decades ago, Sham was away from following the Islamic law and was sinking in deviation , Khurasaan was socialist and so was Adan Abyan. But today, by the Grace of Allah, Khurasaan has great strongholds of jihad: Afghanistan. Sham has known Jihad movements and there is religious awareness in Adan Abyan .

I know these places will witness great Islamic victories in the hands of the mujahideen. Mind you that Al-Qaeda is present in these regions. As for Khurasaan, it is the base of Al-Qaeda, and the base of its leader, Sheikh Usama bin Laden (this was written before Sheikh Usama's martyrdom).

Take a peek at Adan Abyan, the greatest jihad group in the area is Al-Qaeda.

Go to Sham, they are present in some areas including Ghazah (now we witness the revolution and the jihad waged by the great sons of Sham).

First signs of victory are surfacing from these areas. I sincerely believe and trust that by raising flags of jihad, victory will be obtained and Allah knows best.

Their leaders remind us of the ummah's great leaders:

Brother reader, don't hasten criticizing this heading, there is still good out there, particularly in our Muslim ummah. If history recorded the great stand of Mu'tasim, why won't it write down the great stands of our Al-Qaeda leaders? Mu'tasim had great strength and strong military, so his orders were carried out within a flicker, and he was supported at large. His enemies were easily and quickly shaken. As for the leaders of Al-Qaeda they took a great stand to raise this ummah, but they lack weapons and the enemy is loaded, the munafiqeen are many, so are the betrayers and propagandists. That's why victory is taking long. But history won't forget their stand even if the dissidents will.

Verily, history will neither be cool nor have mercy towards the 'scholars' of misleading fatwas (Islamic verdict). It won't favor whoever legitimized the tyrannical regimes. Furthermore, scholars who gave fatwa nullifying Jihad and kept silent regarding befriending the Jews and Christians. History never forgot the stand of Mu'tasim towards one imprisoned woman, do you think it will forget the stand of the Shaykh of Mujahideen, Usama bin Laden (may Allah accept his martyrdom) on the face of the greatest tyrannical force on earth? For many years spilling their blood? Will history forget the spilled blood of his loyal comrades who were martyred fighting the crusaders and tawaghit?

Neither will it forget the famous oath of Sheikh Bin Laden: "I swear by Allah, the Almighty, Who raised the heavens without pillars, America will never enjoy security until we live it in Palestine."

Will history really forget the stand of the amir of martyrdom seekers Abu Mus'ab Az-Zarqawy (may Allah accept him) when he heard the yell of the Iraqi women who were raped by the US backed up by the Rafidhah? He stood up and said: "here I am, o sister! O mother! O chaste pure woman! I swear by Allah, life will never be comfortable, the eyelid won't shut and the sword won't be sheathed till we revenge for your honor and grace. We promise Allah: o dog of Rome, Bush, that you will never enjoy tranquility, your army will not enjoy good life nor safe refuge as long as we have pulsing veins and beating hearts. We are coming by the will of Allah! O lions of Tawheed in the beloved Biladu-Rafiden (Iraq), be determined when you hear this call that no night will fall except your swords are dripping off the enemies' blood.

Stand all and unite; there is no good in this life when our honors are being ripped off, our sisters raped, and the worshippers of the cross occupy our lands!"

If these heartily felt words of the mujahideen leaders, which were followed by actions, were produced by our so-called Muslim scholars, will the Muslim situation be the same as it is today? Surely not!

Take a minute and ask yourselves, if scholars stand and unite as one, and speak these words of truth - all scholars of Bilad al Haramayn, Egypt, Yemen, Sham, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Islamic Maghreb and all other regions - and inspire Muslims to perform jihad, will the Muslims situation be like what it is today? Of course it won't!

Allah says: [8: 29]

WHAT IS AL-QAEDA?

BY FAZUL ABDALLAH

Al-Qaeda is an Islamic group which raises the flag of Jihad to espouse and support the Haqq (truth of Islam) wherever it is found.

Al-Qaeda literally means 'a firm foundation', this name is enough to clarify that it was found to remain fighting Jihad. Allah says, <"And [remember] when you, [O Muhammad], left your family in the morning to post the believers at their stations (maqaa'ida - a derivation of Qa'idah) for the battle [of Uhud] - and Allah is All-Hearer and All-Knower."> Thus it is military posts with equipments prepared to fight the enemies of Allah among the combatant kuffar and their allies wherever they are by the Grace of Allah. Allah says about the mujahideen who fight His enemies, <"You [believers] are more terrorizing within their breasts than Allah." We ask Allah to make us among those who terrorize the infidels, Ameen.>

Al-Qaeda is not a separated party as many think, we do not believe in any party but one - The Glorious Party of Allah. And this group is made up of ummah (nation) of Muhammad. We are against the concept of partisanship which lays down certain special program and obliges the members to abide by their understandings. And whoever differs with them is counted to be on batil (the wrong path). There are many Islamic movements founded on these policies, and this opposes the principle of <"It is He (Allah) who has named you Muslims"> and <"Truly! This, your Ummah (Islamic Monotheism) is one religion."> Therefore, we are Muslims the vanguard of the muslim ummah who call not to partisanship.

Al-Qaeda's main goal in this stage - at least - is to aid every oppressed muslim in this world regardless of his madhhab and race. As for its long-term goal, is to reestablish the Islamic Caliphate through Jihad in the cause of Allah and to implement the Shari'ah of Allah in the whole land of Allah, Biidhnillah.

We are proud that every muslim believes in the Islamic unity and waging jihad against kuffar who occupy our lands. And every muslim has the same ideology as that of Al-Qaeda's.

Alhamdulillah we have conveyed the ideology to the people. It is up to them to stand and strive for the Islamic caliphate through different ways, and to implement the pure law of Allah.

Inspire Exclusive:

The following is an extract from the promised interview 'The Arab Intifada', which we were not able to release for timing reasons, may Allah reward brother Adam Gadahn for his efforts in jihad and da'wah.

"BROTHER ADAM YAHIYE GADAHN ADDRESSES FOES AND ENEMIES. HIS MESSAGES CONCETRATES ON THE AFTERMATH OF THE ARAB SPRING"

From Adam Gadahn

TO THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE CRUSADER WEST:

Today, you have an excellent opportunity to begin to prove that you are serious when you talk about turning over a new leaf and changing Western policy towards the Islamic world, by pulling out your planes, tanks and troops, calling off your proxies, agents, 'jackals' and 'economic hit men,' and leaving the Muslims alone to rule themselves by themselves, free from the 'global governance' of your supranational organizations and institutions.

Unfortunately, your attempts to influence the outcome of the Egyptian, Tunisian, and Yemeni revolutions, and your ill-advised interference in the Libyan uprising, do not bode well for the future of relations between Muslims and the West, and do not indicate good will on your part; nor does your continued backing of the other 50+ despotic regimes in the Muslim world, not to mention your continuing interventions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and the other Muslim countries where you have military bases and troops or whose airspace you regularly violate with your jets, drones, helicopters and hit squads. Even so, you still have a chance to make things right, and I urge you to avail yourselves of this chance before it's too late.

This is your chance to follow in the footsteps of the Soviet Union, when its leaders promised they would not interfere in the political upheavals in Eastern Europe, and kept their promise. Otherwise, be forewarned that any further Western attempts at sabotaging the uprisings and molding them to your liking will result in a backlash which will make you regret the day you put your hands where they didn't belong and meddled in affairs which are none of your business.

Page 38:

TO THE MUJAHIDEEN AROUND THE WORLD:

Let us make it our priority during this stage to focus on direct engagement at home and abroad with America and its NATO partners, particularly France and Britain. The enemies' economic and military hemorrhage must not stop until the day comes when the people of the West are forced to make a choice: either the continuation of the Crusade against the Muslims and the continuation of their backing of Israel, or the continuation of viable governments and basic public services. The recent budget cuts and austerity measures in France and Britain and the 16+ trillion dollar debt crisis in America are signs that that day isn't far away (Allah willing),while the Arab uprisings show that the American empire is at an unprecedented stage of weakness and decline, so let's continue to bleed the head of unbelief dry and let's beware of all attempts to divert us from our strategic objective or draw us into any battles of lower priority, particularly in light of the new realities in the region.

FINALLY, TO THOSE CALLING TO ISLAM AND JIHAD IN GENERAL, AND THOSE WORKING IN JIHADI MEDIA ON THE INTERNET IN PARTICULAR:

This is your day, so rise to the challenge and become a part of history in the making. We mustn't miss this golden opportunity to bring the message of Tawheed and Jihad to a region and a world emerging from under the dark shroud of dictatorships and police states, and we must make every effort to reach out to Muslims both through new media like Facebook and Twitter as well as the traditional broadcast and print media preferred by the older generations; and we should fully acquaint ourselves with both the people to whom we are reaching out as well as the methodology and cause to which we are inviting them, so that we are able to hone our methods, refine our techniques and spread our message in an intelligent and educated fashion accessible to all sectors, sections, levels and factions of the Ummah.

And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds.

"The enemies' economic and military hemorrhage must not stop until the day comes when the people of the West are forced to make a choice: either the continuation of the Crusade against the Muslims and the continuation of their backing of Israel, or the continuation of viable governments and basic public services."

Oh Who Sits Behind

Abu 'Ubaydah Al-Hadhramy

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Universe, may His Peace and Blessings be showered upon His Messenger, Muhammad, his family, his companions and those who follow his footsteps till the Day of Judgment.

I present to you some modest advices out of love and compassion about failing to perform Jihad. Jihad is a great 'Ibadah and its rewards are abundant. Allah has prepared great rewards and high status in Jannah for those who perform Jihad with pure intentions. Brother Muslim, fighting is hateful to the hearts, as Allah has said:

But whenever a Muslim performs it, he finds it becoming peaceful and a source of tourism. Our dear Prophet said:

In Jihad, total bliss and glee is achieved in this life and the Hereafter. O who sits behind, talk to your self to perform Jihad, prepare yourself, as I fear for you the having part of Nifaq (hypocrisy) in your heart. The Prophet Muhammad said:

O who fails to answer the call of Jihad, think about the situation of the Muslim ummah and the humiliation and disgrace it undergoes daily. How many children have been orphaned, how many women have been widowed and stripped off their dignity? The old are killed, Mujahideen imprisoned. What about our Muslim pride and honor? Why are you still sitting as if nothing is happening, enjoying luxury? By Allah, what will you answer the Lord of the worlds when He asks you about His verse:

O who fails to answer the call of Jihad, did you not hear that the devil never sleeps? Look at the Jews and Christians. They work day and night, sacrificing their wealth to serve their null religions. While you my brother in Islam betray supporting Islam, the one and only true religion. I don't understand. Is it your love for this Dunya and its temporary pleasures? Or is it apathy for the great rewards granted to the Mujahideen?

O who neglects Jihad, the fire of Jahannam is intense, its depth unimaginable. In it there is the wrath of Al-Jabbaar! Hellfire is for the Kuffar and wrongdoers. Neglecting jihad without proper reason is a Kabeerah (grave sin). Those who neglect it are severely punished. Remember entering Jannah isn't easy, Allah says:

O who abstains from Jihad, tomorrow you'll stand in front of Allah alone, terrified to death, but there is no death on that day. Allah will talk to you directly. I ask you by Allah, how will you meet Him while you watch His Shari'ah not being implemented? While you did nothing when many unworthy species abuse and defame the Prophet. What type of a Muslim are you? Prepare for the questions my dear fellow Muslims and prepare the answers. May Allah give us Tawfeeq in what He loves and is pleased with.

These words are written by a forth coming heart about the rights of Allah. With only good intended in pursuance of Allah's words:

And may the peace and blessings be upon Allah's Messenger Muhammad, his family and companions, and all Grace is due to Allah.

Is it your love for this Dunya and its temporary pleasures?

Or is it apathy for the great rewards granted to the Mujahideen?

America will never Profit from the Assassination of Imam Anwar Awlaki

If you are looking for the signs of the death of Democracy, then look no further than the actions of its global exporter, America, with its assassination of Imam Anwar Awlaki. Look carefully at America's claim of justice, freedom, liberty and fair trial and contrast this with its actions globally and you will come to realize that America's claim of democracy is nothing but an empty claim. Indeed, for over a decade the consecutive American regimes have been promoting a particular call to the Muslim world, "follow the American freedom, the American way of life, the American dream" and this will give you success in life, life in your economy, life for your women and children, life for your aspirations and dreams.

Allah Musta'an (to Allah alone is the complaint)! How many people were deceived by these false calls, and as a consequence partook in the crime of inviting the American regime into the Muslim lands (i.e. Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi, Kuwait etc)? These deceived individuals in the Muslim lands (leaders, clerics and their followers) became allies with America in their crime of preventing the establishment of the Shari'ah and helping in spreading all kinds of corruption of the west into the Muslim lands via the TV, Internet and various other means. All for the sake of living the American dream.

Men like Sayyid Qutb and more recently, Imam Anwar Awlaki have lived the so called American dream, the American freedom, and found that it was nothing but a nightmare. With great eloquence and command of the English language, Anwar Awlaki became one of the leading Muslims scholars who warned the Ummah of America's hypocrisy, sorcery and injustice.

He said to the Muslims "for how long will you people sleep and dream, whilst the thundering sounds of tomahawk and cruise missiles are above your heads, for how long will you sleep to the sounds of B-52 bombers and screams from your wives and children? For how long will you watch the best of your sons sent to Guantanamo, whilst the tyrants wine and dine in the white house?

For America this was an embarrassment, because Imam Anwar Awlaki was a well educated American citizen who was a scholar in Islamic as well as secular education and had lived and grown up in America, so he understands the culture and was fully aware of the hypocrisy of the government and its manifestations abroad (i.e. in their Foreign Policy). So when he spoke, the Muslim world listened and this angered Obama and America because they saw it as a challenge and danger to their hegemony over the Muslim lands. Hence, they had to silence him by any means necessary, but at what price?

Imam Anwar Awlaki, by his actions and words, challenged the American state with a simple challenge, you say you believe in freedom, liberty and justice, then I will speak the truth about your oppression and corruption, I will challenge your oppressive hegemony over the Muslim lands, I will expose your puppets in the region to the world, but I know you will never be able to hide your ugly face forever behind the mask of freedom.

So America was given two choices:

• To allow Awlaki the freedom to expose their oppression of Muslims and our double standards to them.

• To slaughter their goal called freedom before the whole world.

So with a fading economy, disunited political entity, multi quagmires abroad (Iraq & Afghanistan), Obama and his gang decided to slaughter freedom in front of the whole world once again. They did so many times before in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, Iraq War, Assassination of Shaykh Usama Ibn Laden. So, how could America profit from the anger of Allah, when the greatest profit is the pleasure of Allah? How could America benefit from the assassination of such a noble figure when they have just exposed their hypocrisy before the world? How could America profit from this assassination when they have angered the 'moderate' as well as the 'extremist' Muslims of the whole globe?

America will never profit from the assassination of Imam Anwar Awlaki. This is because the Muslim ummah is inspired by the death of its scholars. Our castles are built upon the ink of our scholars and the skulls of our martyrs, until these castles reach the loftiest height and our ummah is able to see the dawn of victory in the horizon - a victory Allah has been preparing us for!

COVER STORY: We are all Usama

Yahya Ibrahim

As I was watching the anti-Islam US film protests of September 11 last year, tears of joy rolled down my cheeks. The scene was amazing. The Muslim ummah has risen from its long slumber. The protesters chanted "Obama! Obama! We are all Usama." These words echoed throughout the world. I tried to imagine the faces of kuffar. Then I remembered my ex-country (before hijrah) and how the kuffar would tremble with fear upon hearing the name 'Usama'. And Today, they are not only hearing it, but they witness millions embracing his path.

Indeed this is a miracle of Allah in His creation. Subhanallah, Allah raises the status of shuhadaa in this world and Aakhirah, and this is a clear example. Sheikh Usama was on the run for nearly two decades with a 52 million dollars bounty on his head and about a year after his martyrdom, millions chant his name. He threw this world away for the Sake of Allah. For years he lived under the sounds of bullets and missiles. He spent his nights in caves and days in military camps, his goal; to drive the enemies of Allah away from Muslim lands and re-establish Khilafah. He aided the mujahideen around the world, in Chechnya, Bosnia, Somalia among others. Then he changed history's direction.

While in Afghanistan, the other end of the world, Sheikh Usama was able to carry an operation in the heart of USA, New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. A small party of Mujahideen under his leadership carried out a successful assault on the symbols of the American regime's global economic and military dominance in retaliation to America's support to Israel and oppression against the Muslim ummah.

Subsequent to the operation, America revealed its long crusade on the Muslim ummah after its long secrecy. It invaded Afghanistan and Iraq on the pretext of fighting terror. But it just fell into a deep dark pit. And After a decade of war Allah granted Sheikh Usama martyrdom, his lifelong wish. His killing in May 2011 by American assassins failed to turn the tide of the war in America's advantage.

When the ummah of martyrdom seekers, ummah of Islam, loses its mujahideen sons in its war, their blood become a call to other Muslims until the war turns into a project of the ummah, jihadu ummah. Sheikh Usama has become a legend, an icon of not only jihad, but also any deterrence of oppression.

Muslims chant Sheikh Usama's name, not only because of his greatness as an individual but also because of the greatness of his manhaj and his way, the way of jihad and martyrdom. They chant his name to send a clear message to the enemies of Islam that although you killed him, his legacy lives on. Muslims around the world have chosen him as their hero and model. They have answered his call and they are ready to stand and confront the enemies of Allah. They toppled the enemies' puppets and they strive for the implementation of the Shari'ah of Allah in His land.

America has failed its people. It promised them peace and stability subsequent to the martyrdom of Sheikh Usama. And Obama arrogantly announces, "Al-Qaeda has been weakened and Usama bin Laden is no more." But what was the price? Killing a man in order to raise thousands like him. Is it a gain or a loss?

America, you have raised awareness to Muslims all over the globe and passed on the message of Sheikh Usama that you are truly the enemy of Islam.

The ummah of glory has risen. And it is pursuing the mission of "you'll never enjoy peace till we live in peace in Palestine. Inshallah it is only a matter of time before the American empire collapses in the hands of the mujahideen in defeat and disarray, leading to the destruction of Israel and the establishment of a powerful pan-Islamic state which will implement the Law of Allah, hence it will play a major political and economic role in the world ever since and become renowned for its justice and prosperity.

Sheikh Anwar (may Allah accept his martyrdom) said, "We thank Allah the Almighty, for endowing us with life in such we reached the time wherein the mujahideen have spread and are victorious. This is a great blessing. We thank Allah for being in an era wherein we could have good omen, the mujahideen are spreading daily and the enemy, America and its allies, are in subsidence. And the evil omen of America on itself and its allies is that it doesn't want to subside alone, instead it wants to drag its allies along."

Muslims chant Sheikh Usama's name, not only because of his greatness as an individual but also because of the greatness of his manhaj and his way, the way of jihad and martyrdom

To the Knights of Lone Jihad

You are Lethal! You are Devastating! You are the knight who strikes the enemy's heart, penetrating his armor, exposing his vulnerabilities. You are the David who cuts down the Goliath. This unique heroic act can only be performed by you, with steadfast determination, unfaltering courage and rock-solid resolution. Few are selected by Allah for this purpose.

The following advises are presented to the knights of lone jihad:-

1. Tawakkul (reliance) on Allah is paramount to Jihad. Allah says: [3: 160]

Qadar encompasses all things and He does as He wishes. So rely on Allah. He will protect you, support you and guide you. He will put tranquility in your heart and the ability to carry out your mission. Allah says about this reliance: [65: 3]

Bear in mind that reliance on Allah also includes taking precautionary measures, being cautious and abiding by the plan

2. Beware of Ma'asiy (sins); disobedience is a door to failure, a path toward defeat. Remember what happened in the Battle of Uhud was because of Ma'asiy, disobedience and violation of the Prophet's planned strategy.

3. Trust in the promise and reward of Allah. Your strength and support is from the Almighty Alone. Be wary of trusting upon your intelligence and training, your trust should be in Allah alone. Day and night, supplicate to Allah, beseeching Him by His Names and Attributes asking Him to make ease all of your operations and to not entrust you to yourself even for a blink of an eye.

The Prophet Muhammad advised his daughter Fatima to recite in the morning and evening, "Yaa Hayyu Yaa Qayyuum, birahmatika astaghiith, aslih lii sha'nii kullahu walaa takilnii ilaa nafsii tarfata 'ain."

4. Perseverance. Your enemies are not a push over, they persevere in their wickedness. They advise each other to be patience on their Shirk and Kufr. Allah says: [38: 6]

As for you, a believer, Allah, your defender, orders you: [4: 104]

Also the Prophet Muhammad gives you the best advice for perseverance: "Victory comes with patience."

And an old wisdom states: "victory is one hour patience."

5. Have good omen. If you lose track of an enemy, don't be distressed. It is Allah's plan. Don't give up! Bidhnillah you'll achieve your goal, even if it is after some time. How many enemies have escaped their traps only to have Allah return them to justice, with His delay being actually more beneficial.

6. Beware of haste, which leads to negligence. Jihad will continue until the Last Day. Seek refuge with Allah from weakness and laziness. If the Kuffar have evil plans, Allah too has plans, and Allah is the Best of planners. He says about the enemies of His religion and those who fight His Shari'ah: [14: 47/48]

And whoever has evil plans against the religion of Allah, Allah plans against him: .And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. [27: 50/51]

Verily Allah is the Executor of affairs. [8: 17/18]

OSJ TORCHING SCHOOL

TORCHING PARKED VEHICLES

w/ Ibnul Irhab

Easy to do

The West should taste some burning. They should pay for bombarding and burning our Muslim brothers and sisters' homes and our Holy Quran.

For burning down forests, plantations and houses, please refer to Issue 9. It explains the topic in full details.

OPERATION NO PARKING!

Today we have something new for you, VEHICLES. Vehicle are easy to torch. And the easy part is, vehicles need to be parked somewhere, right? How safe is that somewhere, especially in deserted areas? How much more safe will the West feel parking their vehicles, when they know they're up for a TORCHING.

Procedure:

  • Carry your bottle(s) of fuel.
  • Find a deserted parked car.
  • Avoid CCTV cameras or areas where people could see you.
  • After finding a suitable place, plan your escape route.
  • Pour the petrol on the vehicle(s), do not forget the tires. You can pour a line away from the vehicle.
  • Leave the bottle(s) to burn so as not to be caught with it (them).
  • Do not touch the vehicle(s), just in case there is an alarm.
  • Don't get petrol on yourself.
  • Use a matchstick to torch the vehicle directly or the line of petrol.
  • Quickly execute your escape plan acting natural so as to avoid suspicion.

PS: camouflaging the petrol is an important precaution to take. You can use an apple juice bottle.

Ensure the cars you're torching are not Muslims'. Go to known non-Muslim suburbs to be safe, or during their ceremonies. 1200 vehicles were torched In France this New Year's eve.

OSJ SCHOOL FOR ROAD ACCIDENTS

CAUSING ROAD ACCIDENTS

w/ AQ Chef

It's time to visit dad's garage!

1. LUBRICATIVE OIL

We all agree that the Kuffar chose the wrong path. Now it's due time for their vehicles to also leave the right path. Demolition Derby Style.

No road to travel down. No sky to shade them, till they pay Jiziyah while they are humbled.

ARE YOU READY FOR AN AMBUSH?

Requirement:

• 40 liters of Lubricative Oil or more - the more the better. You can also use cooking oil, non-organic are more functional.

Procedure:

• Look for a bend or corner on a highway (divided or undivided). FIGURE 1.1

• Pour the oil on the bend or 15 meters before the sharp corner. Pour on the lane that is exposed to the corner.

What is the best timing?

The best timing for a 'Causing Road Accident' operation is during night hours especially on Sunday nights. Most of the Kuffar will be either drinking or showing off their driving talents to their friends in addition to the poor visbility due to the scarcity of light. Thus it is hard for your ambush tools to be noticed.

Tip

For best results, choose a bend on a mountainous road, a bridge or in a tunnel. As the sliding will surprise the Kuffar much more maybe even causing a down the mountain Chitti Chitti Bang Bang flying special.

Why target highways?

Highways are the target because vehicles are likely to be at a high velocity (speed), and CF and inertia are directly proportional to velocity. Therefore the greater the inertia and CF the greater the damage on the vehicle after losing control.

CF = Mv2/R

Where v = velocity (speed)

*

HOW THE OIL WORKS

A car driving around a curve is exposed to a centrifugal force (CF) which makes the vehicle slide outwards. The centrifugal force is opposed by a frictional force (F) between the treads of the tires and the road to stop the car from sliding.

Therefore, when the centrifugal force becomes greater than the frictional force, the vehicle will slide.

Oil is a lubricant, so pouring oil before the bend reduces the friction between the treads of the tires and the surface of the road. In this case the centrifugal force will be greater friction and the vehicle will slide. (CF>F)

The sliding vehicle may hit a curbstone or grass (X) verges and this will jolt the slide to zero almost instantly. The sudden lateral deceleration produces an inertial force acting through the center of gravity in addition to the centrifugal force, and together they provide a large overturning couple.

A slIding vehicle doesn't necessarily have to hit an object to provide a dangerous overturning couple. For example, a car sliding sideways on this oily surface, suddenly transferring to a dry surface will undergo a considerable lateral deceleration sufficiently large enough to cause overturning, or at least, steering and stability problems.

WARNING

When carrying out these operations, avoid CCTV cameras and all eyes in general.

Did you know?

A vehicle travelling on hundred km/h, after slamming the brakes, it travels 120m before a complete stop.

2. TIRE-BURSTERS

In the previous section, we discussed how to reduce the friction between the tires and the road. The responsible part for the traction was the tread.

In this section we will discuss how to deform the body of the tire which ensures support. Therfore in this issue's OSJ we have targeted the tire as a whole.

Ambushes are one of the deadliest techniques in old and modern warfare.

It requires surveillance and timing. Here we present to you an ambush without the need of any. You place and disappear.

To the Tire-Bursters - that is what I like to call them. The idea is to place them on roads in order to cause the tires of any vehicle, which comes in contact, to burst. While the vehicle is at a high speed, it will lose control and the result are as we have illustrated in the previous section.

Tire-Bursters are simple to make:

Required Components

• A wooden board (12×8×2 inches)

• 20 nails (4 - 5 inches) the thicker the better.

• A hummer.

• Black paint and a brush (for camouflage).

Preparation:

• Tint the black paint to be as the same color as the targeted road. Some roads are darker than others. In our case we just used plain black.

• Paint one face of the wooden board with the new tilted black paint. Also paint the 4 side faces to increase the camouflaging as in FIGURE 1.5 A .

The result should look like FIGURE 1.5 B.

• Divide the unpainted face of the board into an inner and a perimeteral area as shown in FIGURE 1.5 C. The dots in the frame represent the nails.

• Hammer the nails (THICK NAILS) through the unpainted face as in FIGURE 1.5 D. Excess force may cause the board to break - our goal is to break down vehicles.

• Hammering the nails will cause some openings or cracks on the painted face. Fill the cracks with the paint. FIGURE 1.5 E.

Your Tire-Buster will look like FIGURE 1.4. Scary, isn't it?

Note: Do not leave any lead or trace behind e.g. Id cards, fingerprints or school books.

NOTE:

This is an open tool, it could be improvised or changed. As for the 'Assassinating Tire-Bursters', we can't reveal it now for security purposes.

Why accidents?

The goal is Inshallah that if enough Muslims fulfill their obligations of Jihad, the Kuffar and their insurance companies will be so sick of the terror caused and money wasted by these simple operations that they will press their government to stop the tyranny against Muslims. These operations come under the umbrella of deterrence operations as explained above, Pg 20.

For a speeding vehicle, a tiny swerve, one split second of distraction can create devastating outcomes:

SUCCESSFUL AMBUSH?

OSJ SPECIALIST CONSULTANCY

YOU ASK, WE ANSWER

w/ AQ Consultant

Ask the Expert

1. WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION?

All praise due to Allah, the Muslim ummah is rich of talented and learned people. This section is dedicated to give simple guidance for those who are willing to help in the Global Jihad.

Tell me your Profession, and I'll tell you what to do.

PROFESSIONAL: I am an experienced doctor.

AQ CONSULTANT: Create a lethal poison (gaseous), manufacture an anthrax and give the mujahideen medical advice in their blogs or you can contact us directly.

PROFESSIONAL: I am an active journalist.

AQ CONSULTANT: Journalism is a useful profession to the mujahideen. You could surveil the enemy, this could be done through your wide knowledge of current affairs and your access to many areas as a media personnel. Track down the enemies of Allah, hit or send us the surveillance report .

QUESTION: I want to carry out a big Jihad operation to support the religion, guide me.

AQ CONSULTANT: You have great determination, Mashaallah.

Jihad is Ibadah like any other ibadah. And every Muslim targets the best of 'ibadah. But never forget the aspect of niyyah (intention). A small operation could surpass the biggest operation you can think of in Ajr (reward).

Do you know many mujahideen here in the fronts wish to carry out even a small operation in the land of 'aduww (enemy).

Brother, Jihad operations complete each other in our way to attain victory.

Small operations occupy the enemy's time. Hitting him in his backyard drives him crazy. So these small operations of today, are the stepping stone of tomorrow's victory, by the Grace of Allah. Rely on Allah, and answer His call; Jihad.

QUESTION: Who can use OSJ tools and ideas?

AQ CONSULTANT: Inspire Magazine seeks to free the oppressed nations from the Western Hegemony. These tools are for muslims in particular, but others could also use them in their war against the present oppressors, America and its allies..

QUESTION: I hate the leaders of kufr, I want to assassinate the US president, the French president, the British PM or their ministers?

AQ CONSULTANT: Biidhnillah it is easy, if you ask Allah and be true to Him. These people have many weak points, especially during ceremonies, parties and election campaigns. Bare in mind, they come to and leave from these parties, therefore, there must be some means of transport which is a chance for surveillance or even action.

If you think you are unable, then you have easy targets like Bush, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell or Condoleezza Rice. Of course you can also kill Sarkozy and Tony Blair. It is now easy to reach these guys, especially that they aren't in office anymore.

Son of Islam, delight the ummah of Islam

You can send your question to AQ via the emails provided in the Contact Page below. It is your right to ask, our duty to answer.

Tip

Ricin is one of the easiest of poisons to make. In the autopsy room, finding ricin is next to impossible in the subject's body. It will kill within 12 to 24 hours. One pound of ricin is a lethal dose for 3 million people by injection.

What else could I do?

A journalist could also help the global jihad by exposing the western crimes and lies, which is part of professionalism. This could be done by showing their massacres of Muslims and weak nations, their war crimes and stealth e.g. oil.

2. SHORT ANSWERS FOR ASSUMED QUESTIONS

Remember!

• Remember to prepare your heart for any operation.

• Remember to refuge yourself from satan.

• Remember jihad is wajib and not sunnah.

• Remember to remind yourself of the great rewards of jihad.

• Remember the tears of the children of Palestine.

• Remember the scream of your Afghani sister.

• Remember the bombarded houses in Mali.

• Remember your sisters in the crusaders' prisons.

• Remember you are a servant of Allah.

Whom do I work with?

In these small operations, work alone. Let it be a secret between Allah and you. Make it impossible for any one to point a finger at you. This is for your safety. It is also interesting, sitting in your living room watching the news you made and how the kuffar are suffering, a tit-for-tat.

Tip

For lower profile figures assassination, ninjutsu is an important method as you don't have the worry of hiding your weapon. Brother muslim, utilize your time well and prepare your self physically. You are the soldier the muslim ummah waits for.
